hi danman,

i have a patch of sun damage on my forehead, like a patch of melasma. i have tried ipl photodynamic therapy and it did nothing. my skin specialist said the damage was too deep in the dermis for photodynamic therapy to work. she told me the only way to remove it is a chemical peel in the area after a few weeks on a high retinol product. However if the sun damage you are talking about is freckiling and stuff, i have found that photodynamic therapy works great :D

After a course of accutane, I am now clear but I have dark spots from sun damage and acne scarring (no pitted scars though...thankfully!).

My derm has prescribed TriLuma Cream and "Silk Peels" every other month with the esthetician. The cream not only helps fade the spots, but it has a bit of Retin A in it too.

They have great chemical peels on ebay. I just bought one for less than $5 including shipping.
